I've gone through where I bought the computer, my college's network department, all over the internet and with a Microsoft service representative. This seemingly simple network error is literally unsolvable. Every single person has told me to reinstall windows. All it says is that the Diagnostics Policy Service is not running whenever I try to troubleshoot why computer can't pick up any signals. The ironic part is even though I believe the drivers are fine, some have advised to reinstall the drivers -- but the download site for the drivers is not responding!
I am posting from an alternate computer. I am on campus and I literally never have problems with my laptop at home. Please save me from a reinstallation -- does ANYONE IN THE WORLD know how to fix this diagnositcs policy service problem? I've read loads of "solutions", but none of them work. Thanks in advance.
I will try out some of those solutions (the ones I have not tried / looked into). Is this problem literally unsolvable? Isn't there a way to tell what particular solution I should use for my particular computer's circumstance? Would a HiJackThis log help?
I'm going to do a Repair Install if I can't figure anything out -- I did not realize that this was an option.
